  • 8 medium russet potatoes 4 pounds total
  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese softened
  • cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese divided
  • 4 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons diced fresh chives


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Start a large pot with cold, salted water on the stove to boil. Peel and cut the potatoes into 1-inch cubes.
  • Add potatoes to pot and bring to a boil, then reduce to medium low heat to simmer for 12-15 minutes, or until potatoes are soft.
  • Drain and place the potatoes in a large bowl. Mash well with a fork or mixer until desired consistency.
  • Add in the cream cheese, butter, and sour cream until well combined.
  • Stir in seasonings (garlic powder, smoked paprika, salt and pepper) and one cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.
  • Spread potato mixture into a 9-inch by 13-inch baking dish. Top with remaining shredded cheese and crumbled bacon.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Garnish with chives and serve!


For totally smooth potatoes using a Ricer works best. The potatoes can also be mashed with a masher or mixer.
Notes: You can prepare this dish ahead of time and refrigerate. When ready to bake, increase the cook to 40-45 minutes since the potatoes will be cold.
Great side dish for holiday meals!
